The story of the women behind Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown.

Post World War II Britain is suffering, including seamstresses and embroiderers. We get to know two of them, Ann and Miriam, in particular before they are hired to work on Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown. Their personal stories are full of mysteries that Ann's granddaughter is trying to unravel decades later after she finds pieces of embroidery that her grandmother left her. Told through alternate points of view, it all comes toegther and is stitched perfectly in the end. A fascinating read for this fan of "The Crown".
